What is the Difference Between 80g and 220g Binding Paper

Date: 17 Jul 2020 | Tag: binding paper

An internationally recognized unit of measuring paper is the GSM (Grams per Square Meter) unit, and there are different kinds of papers that fall into this category of measurement. The GSM is sometimes shortened to a simple letter ‘g’ to allow for easy recognition of paper weights.

Paper has applications that span a wide range of products such as the heavy duty stapler, the binding machine, et cetera, and determining the weight of paper is essential for its application on all these mediums. Rayson is a leading manufacturer of paper processing machines in the world today, and this organization provides machines that help its clients make the best of their paper applications.

80g and 220g papers are some of the predominant paper weights in the world today and highlighted below are some of their significant differences (both in outlook and application):

80g paper is quite light in texture, and its applications are lightweight (such as photocopying, light printing, et cetera). In comparison, the 220g paper is quite thick (it is so thick it is referred to as a card) and so the applications of this kind of paper are quite different from that of the 80g paper. 220g paper is generally good for making hardcover backs for books and materials. In some cases, the 220g paper is used to make printing cards because of its thickness.
